Gold Trophy Show and Sale

The Gold Trophy Show and Sale (GTSS) is the premier bison auction in the U.S. For over 35 years bison producers have brought their best bison stock to Denver’s National Western Stock Show to show and sell their animals. The sale features high quality, judged breeding stock as well as top-notch production animals. The GTSS also features its popular “market class” auction, in which the public can come and bid on top quality, all natural bison carcasses to be processed into meat cuts to your specifications. The mission of the Gold Trophy Show and Sale is to create an environment where producers can compete to establish the value of their bison in the current marketplace.
